"It's that simple and it's that dumb."

Matt Yglesias has a great little piece on the really warped logic the Bush Administration uses to justify its actions. In the particular instance, the question is a free trade agreement with Colombia, yet as Yglesias points out, the same modus operandi applies across the board to pretty much everything these dunces do.
In Bush world, first you set out to do something. Then if that thing seems to not be working out or causing problems, what you need to do is do it again harder. Anything else, after all, would only embolden the bad guys.

Thus the surge, the push to make permanent the tax cuts passed in 2001 and 2002, to pass another Patriot Act, another FISA bill - more and better stupid up and down the line.

Otherwise, the terrorists win.

January 20, 2009 cannot come fast enough.
